A lucky lottery player from London has won a €248,000 (£210,000) EuroMillions prize after betting on the game for the first time. Valentin Zafirov matched all five numbers and one of the Lucky Stars in the draw on Tuesday 21st March to land the sizeable six-figure sum.
The rookie gamer from Enfield landed his fortune after placing a bet on which numbers would be drawn via Jackpot.com, and admitted to being overjoyed by the news: “I am a welder by trade and trust me, sparks were flying when I found out!” The 40-year-old told reporters. However, his thoughts did stray a little when he realised just how close he was to the top prize: “When I saw the results, I was so happy but I have to admit all I could think was – ‘I was one number away from winning €25 million!’”.
Nevertheless, the father of one was confident that his newfound wealth would be a game changer, but admitted that he wouldn’t turn his back on his passion for welding: “I love my job and have no intention of changing what I do, but this is completely life-changing for me and my family,” he said.
Valentin is the latest player to win big thanks to Jackpot.com, with the site growing in popularity around the world on a daily basis. “The site is very clear and easy to use and I love the variety of the games,” gushed the lottery convert.
If you would like to follow in the footsteps of Valentin and win a EuroMillions prize of your own, you can choose your numbers online or pick up a ticket from any authorised retailer throughout the UK, so there’s no excuse to miss out on this Friday’s estimated £63 million jackpot. Good luck!
